The Bigger Picture film club will be showing ‘Lust, Caution’ (2007) at 8pm on Thursday, 21 September 2017, Upstairs at East Dulwich Tavern.
During the years before and during World War II, a young woman, Wang Jiazhi, gets swept up in a dangerous game of emotional intrigue with a powerful political figure, Mr. Yee. Frustrated in his attempts to assassinate Yee, Old Wu recruits Kuang, Mai Tai Tai, and their troupe of drama students from Hong Kong University in an attempt to do away with Yee. Mai Tai Tai is chosen to befriend Yee, which she does by posing as the wife of Mai, befriending Yee's wife and her female friends, and then eventually befriending Yee himself, in order to try and entrap Yee.
Director: Ang Lee
China 157 minutes Cert PG
We say: With its intimate performances, powerful emotional currents and deep, rich colour palette, it captures a moment in Chinese history and is arguably one of Ang Lee’s most sophisticated films.
Bar opens from 7pm. Film at 8pm.
